In three successful years as Police & Crime Commissioner Alun Michael has used his vast experience to lead South Wales Police through a period of cuts and major challenges.

Budget cuts have forced a reduction from 3,400 to 2,800 in police officer numbers, but he’s worked closely with the Chief Constable and his team to build powerful alliances with the health service, with the seven local authorities of South Wales, and with voluntary & community groups to make the communities of South Wales safe.

This deeply-embedded partnership approach is now paying dividends for the people of South Wales, with initiatives helping to cut violence against women and girls, to intervene quickly with young offenders and women offenders to prevent re-offending, and a focus on protecting vulnerable people and supporting victims. He’s promoted the principles of co-operation and the concepts of “early innovation and prompt positive action” as the way to make communities safe.

In advance of this election, and building on these firm foundations, Alun has made six pledges to the people of South Wales :

  • To make your community safer by keeping policing local
  • To cut crime & disorder in co-operation with all public agencies
  • To protect the most vulnerable in our communities
  • To spend your money wisely to protect your local police team
  • To challenge the criminal justice system to meet the needs of victims
  • To play a part nationally and in tackling online threats

Alun’s Police and Crime Plan 2016-2021 spells out how, if re-elected, he’ll drive work forward to deliver on those promises. That plan can be seen on the official South Wales Police website at :

Mewn tair blynedd lwyddiannus fel Comisiynydd Heddlu a Throseddu mae Alun Michael wedi defnyddio ei brofiad helaeth i arwain Heddlu De Cymru trwy gyfnod o doriadau a heriau mawr.

Mae toriadau mewn cyllid o’r Swyddfa Gartref wedi gorfodi gostyngiad o 3,400 i 2,800 yn nifer swyddogion yr heddlu, ond mae Alun wedi gweithio’n agos â’r Prif Gwnstabl a’i dîm i adeiladu cynghreiriau grymus gyda’r gwasanaeth iechyd, gyda’r saith awdurdod lleol yn Ne Cymru, a chyda grwpiau gwirfoddol a chymunedol i wneud cymunedau De Cymru yn ddiogel.

Mae cydweithio cryf yn dwyn ffrwyth i bobl De Cymru, gyda mentrau yn helpu i dorri trais yn erbyn menywod a merched, i ymyrryd yn gyflym gyda throseddwyr ifanc a merched sy’n troseddu, er mwyn atal aildroseddu, a gyda ffocws clir ar ddiogelu pobl sy’n fregus a chefnogi dioddefwyr. Mae e’n hyrwyddo egwyddorion cydweithrediad a chysyniadau o “arloesi cynnar a gweithredu cadarnhaol prydlon” fel y ffordd i wneud cymunedau yn ddiogel.

Cyn yr etholiad hwn, ac yn adeiladu ar y sylfeini cadarn hyn, mae Alun wedi cynnig chwe addewid i bobl De Cymru :

  • I ddiogelu cymunedau drwy gadw plismona yn lleol i bobl De Cymru
  • I dorri anhrefn a throseddu mewn cydweithrediad gyda’r holl asiantaethau cyhoeddus
  • I warchod y mwyaf bregus yn ein cymunedau
  • I wario eich arian yn ddoeth i amddiffyn eich tîm heddlu lleol
  • I herio’r system cyfiawnder troseddol i ddiwallu anghenion dioddefwyr
  • I chwarae rhan mewn plismona ar lefel y DU ac i fynd i’r afael â bygythiadau ar-lein

Mae’r Cynllun yr Heddlu a Throseddu 2016-2021 a gyhoeddwyd gan Alun yn dangos sut, os caiff ei ail-ethol, bydd yn gweithio i gyflawni’r addewidion hyn. Mae’r cynllun i’w weld ar wefan swyddogol Heddlu De Cymru yma : commissioner.south-wales.police.uk/cy/amdanom-ni
